Pauline Chandler

PaulineI cannot write unless I read, because each one nourishes the other.  My favourite writer is Jane Austen because of her simple and unsentimental style.  Her clarity and coherence inspire me to put similar self-control into my writing and I admire her ability to layer easy manner and emotion onto the page.  Furthermore, I love her demonstration of writing’s power to express social criticism.

I am participating in the Creative and Professional Writing course at St Mary’s University to enhance my writing portfolio and, most importantly become the best writer I can be.  Guided experimentation will allow me to push my writing in a new direction; investigate more advanced writing techniques; experiment with form and genre; to interrogate fiction as a whole.
